Activision has announced that Call of Duty: Mobile will host an esports tournament with over $1 million USD as the cash prize. Players of the mobile title ranked Veteran or higher in multiplayer mode will be able to participate in the open online qualifiers, which is scheduled to take place April 30 through May 24.
Players who earn at least 80 points across their first 10 ranked games each weekend will be able to progress to the second stage of the World Championship. All eligible players that participate will earn in-game rewards for registering and playing each weekend. External input devices like controllers, mice and keyboards are banned from being used, unless granted by an official. Most certainly, the game cannot be played on a desktop emulator, as the tournament is booked as an almost exclusive touchscreen tournament to maintain the mobile competitiveness.
Online qualifiers for the tournament kick off on April 30th and will run through May 24th, after which the tournament will begin. Details — like the structure of the tournament, how prizes will work, and where fans can watch — are slight at the moment.

The free-to-play, mobile Call of Duty spinoff became a breakout hit last year, racking up a staggering 100 million downloads in its first week of availability. And while mobile titles are far from a major force in esports, other big games have made similar forays into the field, including PUBG Mobile and Supercell titles like Clash Royale and Brawl Stars.
Meanwhile, esports continues to push forward during the ongoing pandemic, with the Call of Duty League recently restarting as an online competition and other major esports finding ways to operate while staff and players are stuck working from home.
